Will The Rolling Stones tour in 2013? No one seems to really know a definite answer to that question. However Stone’s fans should be hopeful with the recent announcement of a few shows in 2012 at Brooklyn’s newest venue, the Barclays Center. The show dates have yet to be officially announced but apparently are already under contract with either the promoter or the venue.
Fans of The Rolling Stones have been teased each of the last few years as the band has seem like they were perpetually on the edge of signing a touring contract, only to have it fall apart for some reason or another. It does however seem likely that 2013 will be the year that the band does its final tour ever, which by the way will most likely be the highest grossing tour of 2013 as well. That should be enough motivation to get tour plans finally set in stone.
Since coming together in London in 1962, The Rolling Stones have released 24 studio albums and have become wildly popular worldwide. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, earning the title of the “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band.” The American-blues-infused English rock band is currently formed by lead vocalist Mick Jagger, guitarist and vocalist Keith Richards, drummer Charlie Watts, and guitarist Ronnie Wood. Among the group’s most famous songs are “Brown Eyed Girl,” “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” and “Paint it Black.” Their music is still being played on the radio, as well as being used on TV commercials and movies, so it is hard to imagine anyone has not heard The Rolling Stones.
Being one of the most popular live music attractions in the world, The Rolling Stones have toured dozens of times and given hundreds of performances. They have been all over North America, Europe, and the United Kingdom, with shows and audiences growing bigger and bigger as time goes on. During their most recent tour, “A Bigger Bang,” the band gave the biggest rock concert of all time at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2006, with 2 million people present. Even though the youngest member of the group, Watts, recently turned 71, fans are excited to hear that the Stones are planning a 50th anniversary tour for the year 2013.
